About

We are looking for someone with horticulture/hydroponics experience to help out with an innovative new program of putting hydroponics systems in local public schools (in Las Vegas). These are schools that already have traditional raised bed vegetable gardens outside but would like to extend their teaching to hydroponics. What is needed is someone who has knowledge of hydroponics so that the prefabricated systems can be installed and then checked up upon on a regular basis. We run a small nonprofit (6 full-time employees) that has helped to fund and install approx 90 school gardens in the last three years. Thus we run one of the largest school garden programs in the United States. This is an opportunity to further horticulture/hydroponics' knowlege among local K-12 students, as well as to help futher their science, nutrition and knowledge of conservation.
